Police are appealing for information after a serious crash on the A10 near Melbourn.


A man was seriously injured in a crash on A10 near Melbourn yesterday, and police have now launched an appeal for anyone who saw the incident to come forward.

The crash happened at about 2.15pm when a Tesco delivery van travelling southbound along the A10 at Melbourn was in collision with a white Seat Leon and a black Kia Cee’d.

The driver of the Kia – a man in his 40s – was taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge with serious injuries.

Police, the ambulance service, a Royston fire crew and the Essex and Herts Air Ambulance attended – and the A10 was closed from Melbourn to the junction with the A505 for around seven hours.

PC Stephen Andrews, from the Beds, Cambs and Herts Road Policing Unit, said: “The road was busy at the time and we are keen to speak to anybody who saw the collision or the vehicles involved leading up to it.”

Anyone with information about the collision should call the road policing unit on 101, quoting incident number 254 of October 25.
